Cocke County, Tennessee
Deed Book Vol. 15

The following deeds from deed book #15 have information of definite genealogical value. The genealogical information may be something as simple as "adjoins the lands of John Smith deceased" or the fact that John Smith lived outside Cocke County. Or the information could be from a deed of partition in which all heirs are named.
